Question about Computers & Internet

No sound Hey everybody a couple of days ago AVG antivirus was updating into avg 8 , and all of the sound the computer crashed, no more sound, and whenever i tried to run anything, after a few minutes, i would get the blue screen of death and a message showing me that there was some error with an avg file, so i went and removed avf altogether from the pc, and the crashing problem stopped, but, still there was no sound, i totally uninstalled realtek HD audio drivers, removed it all, and made windows install its own drivers, still no sound, reinstalled realtek again and still no sound, i dont have any sound programs or any mixing utilities that might make any conflicts with my current drivers, so i reinstalled windows vista all over again, fresh new copy, and still no sound, installed realtek drivers, and no sound still, when i go to control panel , it says that i dont have any speakers connect, even though they are, and i've tested them on other pc's and they work fine, when i go to sound in control panel , and i click on the speakers that it says its not connected and then go to properties and try to play a test tone under advanced i get a message that says "error-failed to play test tone" im really afraid that something mightve happened to my motherboard, because its not detecting that there are speakers whenever i unplug and plug them back in , which i usually get the auto-popup for it. i hope somebody can help me with this problem, thanx everybody

    before you rush out for a new sound card, check audio has not been disabled in the system bios by avg install prep (assuming its onboard)

Advantages and Disadvantages of AVG Anti-Virus


<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install. The installation is straightforward and doesn't require a restart. And while it's not the fastest, it's relatively quick and performs an update immediately.</li> <li> Improved features: - Though you can download AVG protection software freely, but the security software is by no means ineffective.</li> <li> It's improved features like Link Scanner, ID Protection makes it the most effective scanner.</li></ul> <p> <br /> <p>Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>When uninstalling AVG version 7 or 8 in Windows XP/Vista and attempting to install other anti-virus programs such as Kaspersky Anti-Virus or Norton Antivirus, the latter programs will not install.<br /> <p>Instead, they show an "incompatible software installed" error even if the uninstalled software has been removed using the control panel.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>This happens because software that updates and changes can add registry entries that were not added when the product was originally installed.<span> </span>A signature update dated November 9, 2008, crippled some computers, as it allowed the software to treat "user32.dll", a major component of Windows XP/Vista, as a Trojan and advised users to delete it. Users who deleted the file in question were put on a continuous reboot loop. The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

What you need is a good Antivirus or Antivirus. Its usually very benefiting when you have Antivirus installed in your PC from the first day you start working with a computer especially a computer that is hooked with internet or/and is being used with media that is of an unreliable source and may be infected.
You can try removing viruses from your computer but if the Viruses has occupied heavily certain part of the root partition then the antivirus will not be able to help you and you will have to clean install your OS (Windows or Linux etc). Do not forget to update your Antivirus with latest update.
To start with a good and a Free antivirus you can try AVG before you purchase a complete version of any good Antivirus with full features.
You can download  AVG Antivirus from the following path.

Hi!

The 8.5 vesrin is NOT the free one, AVG site says that the newest version is 8.0 for free.
Uninstall that 8.5, download the 8.0 and install it. That will solve your problems. And the AVG site is up. never been down.
Here you can download the latest FREE version:

How can i remove virus


You can remove virus by using updated antivirus. Install it on your computer. I recommend you to use updated AVG 8 or AVAST antivirus full versions because it will surely remove viruses from your system. Scan your computer with the antivirus and don't forget to delete all the infected files and the viruses found in the chest or mostly known as virus vault. Use only one antivirus on your system because using more than one antivirus may crash down your computer.
